(This Word began as a message for an individual, but expanded into something for many.)
“But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house,” Mark 6:4.
“Be aware of the fact that once you are called into the ministry of a prophet, that you will be surrounded by all kinds of activity.
For spiritual forces are at work to dissuade you from following after Me.
But if you continue in your relationship with Me, then I will bring about the training for you.
The road can oftentimes be a lonely one, as those who you thought were your true friends, now are seen for what they are. And yet I AM the one who would remain if you continue in your walk with Me.
There are many who are called, and yet only a few, will continue, as the roads get steeper. Family members will shake their heads thinking that surely you have lost your mind.
But this is the road that some have been called to take.
In the coming months, many who have been called will fall, as the road has now become too narrow for them. And yet if they would have continued, then they would have seen that there were times of refreshing ahead for them.
It is not a time to shrink back in fear, but to continue in the walk that I’ve called you take.
I will call upon some of you to leave your homes.
I will call upon some of you to go out into the wilderness alone.
I will call upon some of you to go into the enemy’s camp.
I will call upon some of you to prepare places of sanctuary.
For the land must be purged; and the times of judgment have begun.
I will send hope to those who are in need of it, but the word of truth must go forth even as an arrow
I train those who are called by my name, and the fiery darts of the enemy will not succeed in harming you if indeed, you keep your shields raised in front of you.”
~ Stephen Hanson
Stephen Hanson of In His Truth Ministries came to the LORD is a special way in 1975 and has prophesied regularly since. In these end-time birthing pangs we are reminded that judgment must first begin with the household of God. Will we be prepared and ready?
